Which Star Trek Iconic Lent His Voice To A Decepticon In The 1986 Transformers Movie?

George Takei
William Shatner
Leonard Nimoy
DeForest Kelley
During World War II The U.S. Government Banned (But Quickly Returned) What As A Cost Saving Measure?

Answer: Leonard Nimoy

If you’re a sharp-eared fan of the Transformers franchise, there’s a good chance that today’s trivia was a walk in the park for you because Leonard Nimoy has lent his voice to not one but two characters in the history of the Transformers films.

In the 1986 animated film The Transformers: The Movie, Leonard Nimoy voices the character of Galvatron, the metamorphosis of Megatron brought about by the intervention of Unicron–the chaotic dark god of the Transformers universe. Nimoy again lent his voice acting talent to the franchise for the 2011 film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, where he voiced Sentinel Prime.

Nimoy certainly isn’t the only Star Trek notable to make an appearance in Transformers films and TV shows. Nichelle Nichols had a small voice cameo in 2007’s Transformers and George Takei voiced Yoketron in the Transformers cartoon.
